The subtle signs of autumn approaching are all around. The flowers that were blooming in July & August are turning to seed and starting to turn brown, making way for a few late blooming species. The Meadowhawks and Dashers are still visible, but notice that most of the backgrounds have changed from green to brown.
As the sun approached the horizon, I was stuck how it lights up the edges of the grasses and reeds. The warm tones of the setting sun are the perfect complement for the wispy grasses.
On the far side of the lower imoundment a Great Blue Heron, wades in the shadows searching for his dinner.
Oh how quickly the sun descends below the horizon. As it diminishes, the moon starts to exert it's presence in the sky. Even as the disk of the sun has disappeared from view, we try to cling on to those last rays of sun. Their memory will comfort in the dark nights that are ahead.
